The skill you guys have with these dioramas is astounding , I haven't the patience myself . . .
Is the white streak the torpedo track ?

I also did a write up to go with the scene. If there is anything I have wrong, I would appreciate corrections from those who probably know more about it than I do.

A lovely job. The sea looks superb and I know how difficult that is as I am in the process of doing my first sea for a miniature... :-))

Same scene under moonlight, looks a bit different.

Saw this on Facebook too. Craftsmanship on the paint alone is stunning. Particularly like the reflection of the moon in the moonlight photo. One day when I'm retired I'll attempt something like this. Awesome job man!
